During each 2-year SR1 CE cycle, an inspector must earn 16 CE credits prior to his/her anniversary date. Certification immediately expires if this requirement is not met.

No credits may accrue prior to entering the CE Program.

Certification Expiration Policy Regarding CE Credits

If the certification expiration was due to failure to meet the continuing education requirement of 16 credits, the inspector has up to 12 months to recertify at the SR1 level; however, after 12 months of non-certification he must recertify at the 102 level.
